Hard Targets succumb to Dead Again, 175.05-130.20
Hard Targets fell short of projections, as Dead Again secured a 175.05-130.20 win. Hard Targets took a 55.7-point lead early Sunday afternoon behind stellar showings from the New England Patriots defense (37 points) and Ezekiel Elliott (20). But Dead Again held the lead the rest of the way, powered by Patrick Mahomes (443 Pass Yds, 4 Pass TDs) and Travis Kelce (7 Rec, 107 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD). Dead Again (2-0) will look to notch another win against Norman Nobodies, while Hard Targets (0-2) will face Soonerjack in an effort to earn their first win.
